Colloque sur John Pierpont Morgan (10-11 novembre 2017)

Les 10-11 novembre 2017 aura lieu au Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art (Hartford, Connecticut, USA) un colloque sur le grand collectionneur américain John Pierpont Morgan (1837-1913): “Morgan: Mind of the Collector“.

J. Pierpont Morgan (1837–1913) spent over twenty years travelling the globe to amass the largest collection of art and cultural artifacts of his time. Estimated to have exceeded 20,000 works of art, Morgan’s collections represent a broad historical and geographic range of art and cultural artifacts. Acting on his father’s wishes, J.P. Morgan’s son, Jack, donated more than 1,350 works collected by his father to the Wadsworth Atheneum in his native Hartford.  In fall 2017, the Wadsworth Atheneum will mark the centennial anniversary of Morgan’s  gift and its historical impact with an exhibition, Morgan: Mind of the Collector.
The Wadsworth Atheneum will host an international symposium in conjunction with the exhibition to reexamine and showcase the latest research about Morgan’s collection and how he shaped the identity of the collector in the modern age.
